Rise of the Machines - Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - Netflix
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (also referred to as Terminator 3 or T3) is a 2003 American science-fiction action film directed by Jonathan Mostow and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nick Stahl, Claire Danes and Kristanna Loken. It is the third installment in the Terminator film series, following Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and The Terminator (1984). It does not involve James Cameron, who directed and wrote the first two films. It grossed over $434 million worldwide. After Skynet failed to kill Sarah Connor before her son John Connor (Stahl) was born, and also failed to kill John Connor as a child, Skynet now sends another Terminator back in time, the T-X (Loken), in an attempt to wipe out as many Human Resistance officers as possible. This includes John Connor's future wife, Kate Brewster (Danes), but not John himself as his whereabouts are unknown to Skynet. John's life is placed in danger when the T-X finds him while pursuing Kate. The Resistance has also sent their own Terminator (Schwarzenegger) back to protect the T-X's targets. The film was followed by a sequel Terminator Salvation (2009).

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 70% approval rating with an average rating of 6.6/10 based on 204 reviews.

Shortly after the film's release, Terminator creator James Cameron described the film as “in one word: great”, but after the release of the fourth film, Terminator Salvation. Cameron stated he felt his first two films were better than either of the later films. A. O. Scott of The New York Times said the film “is essentially a B movie, content to be loud, dumb and obvious”. Roger Ebert gave the film two-and-a-half stars, remarking “Essentially one long chase and fight, punctuated by comic, campy or simplistic dialogue.”
